The sharp eyed amongst you will have noticed a curious new addition to the blog roll. Point your eyeballs in the direction of the ‘Family’ section on the blogroll and behold; Pickled Politics has a Google Calendar!

Not quite the dramatic addition perhaps but we now have a space to log all manner of upcoming appointments, events, or generally items of interest. As you can see it’s pretty bare right now so we need you’re help. All suggestions are welcome for what to fill it with, not limited to events as already mentioned, anything you think Pickled Politics writers and readers would be interested in e.g. interesting TV progs, public events, cultural events/celebrations or event dates to remember (like the alleged BNP chemical plot trial in the New Year). Leave suggestions in the comments; alternatively email us at the usual address.

    In the spirit of sharing, I think this is an excellent idea…

    but is there anyway to share infomation along broader themes? eg: I’m still miffed I missed the interfaith conference in London yesterday in which Tariq Ramadan apparently gave an excellent speech…what can I say, I didn’t know, it was not on his website!…but I’m sure someone on PP might have known and could have pointed it out to other interested folk earlier…
    could the calender be used for such things?

    also…regarding free open public events..
    LSE, SOAS and City Circle have brilliant events and talks almost daily..check out their events pages…
    Really excellent stuff!

    Excuse me, what, what. November 2 is the cultural vulture event of the year: it’s when Borat’s film is released in the UK!

    http://www.borat-movie.co.uk

    Ummm, now how can I make it relevant to PP…

    Okay, here are some hypothetical issues to consider, bearing in mind the film is massively anti-semitic and that Borat is played by Sacha Baron-Cohen (Jewish):

    * If Borat was played by a muslim comedian, how would the Jewish community respond?

    * If Borat poked fun at Muslims to the same degree as he does with Jews, how would the Muslim community respond?

    * If Borat was a muslim, and the comedian was also muslim, and the film poked fun at Muslims, how would the muslim community react.

    I have no strong views on the hypotheticals above, but they are all potentially very explosive. On a personal level, if I was to consider them with any depth I would probably find myself riddled with hypocrisies and contradiction. I think I’ll enjoy Borat as is and leave the ‘thinking’ for another time!
